We’ll Surprise You!

The leaders of Middlesex Community College and the Meriden Public School System are piloting a new educational collaborative to keep quality and affordable higher education growing in Meriden.

Here are some frequently asked questions about this exciting new partnership:

MxCC@Platt has the same great faculty as the Middletown campus and the same excellent student support services offered at a location and times that might be more convenient.

Afternoon and evening classes are held at the newly renovated Orville H. Platt High School, 220 Coe Avenue, in Meriden. MxCC students have their own designated entrance close to the main entrance of the school. Once inside, take the stairs on the right up to the second floor classrooms.

MxCC@Platt offers over 50 courses ranging from core courses in English and math to courses including communication, computer science, digital arts, early childhood education, human services, art, music, science, sociology, and history.

CT Transit provides bus service to MxCC@Platt Monday through Thursday. The bus departs the Meriden Railroad Station in Meriden to Platt High School at 2:30pm, 3:50pm, and 5:00pm. The bus arrives/departs Platt High School at 2:40pm, 4:00pm and 5:10 pm.

Parking is in a designated, well-lit lot near the MxCC entrance of Platt High School.

MxCC@Platt uses 10 classrooms including computer and science labs. The media center is available for study space, tutoring, access to MxCC online learning materials, and as a place for students to check out MxCC textbooks and loanable equipment. It is also a terrific place to see your friends and socialize.
